Every now and then a story of progress emerges. WPX is embracing this technology because it has proved economically beneficial. The same is true for their discontinued use of frack sand in certain tight sand formations and using horizontal drilling to reach further from a single pad. As a sidebar, they decrease pollution. It is diminishing that these steps must be economically beneficial more so than pollution abating, but still, kudos for doing them. I would however, suggest the next step be the replacement of the slickwater fluids of fracking with liquified NG with the subsequent recovery of product. This latter improvement can reduce pollution, health and safety for collateral neighborhoods. Perhaps the savings might justify it by taking out third party frackers, using cheap available product, transportation and obscene valuable water usage. There would still be “produced” water, but the additional toxic chemicals would be gone and the volumes for treatment would be reduced.
